A Gift from the Boy

Pin It!

I told you all, the other day, about my retail therapy… but I forgot to show you what I bought: a new hat! Just kidding; I restrained myself… what on earth would I do with something so atrocious? Actually, I didn’t end up purchasing anything the other day. After all, not everyone can be as […]

Dining Out, Vegan-Style

Pin It!

Identity Crisis! Today, my name is Katie Crunk, and I can be found on my friend Bianca’s blog. She, in turn, can be found right here! Stick around as we attempt to sort out this mix up ;).   Hey everybody! This is a Dirty South Crunk takeover of the lovely Miss Chocolate Covered Katie’s […]

Retail Therapy

Pin It!

So yes, I have gone back to college. And already, I’m missing the slower-paced days of summer. Tell me if this happens to you: By the end of the summer, you’re totally ready for school to start again… but then, two days into the school year, you want summer back! Lucky me, I’m only 5 […]

CCK, the College Years

Pin It!

It’s finally time to continue with the “CCK Goes to College” story. As I wrote in Chocolate-Covered Katie’s College Story: Part One, it was definitely a good choice to cut my losses and transfer schools; a bigger university with more class options was a much better fit for me.  Right away, I made a lot of new […]

Nurse Katie

Pin It!

Life really isn’t fair. I know I sound like a petulant child for saying this, but sometimes it’s true. Here’s my reasoning: My mother is the most amazing woman in the world. (Of course I am biased, but I’m not the only one who thinks so. Many of my friends agree; my fifth grade class […]

Chili Night with the Guys

Pin It!

Last night was guys’ night! Wait a sec, Katie. You’re not a guy. Yeah, yeah. But sometimes I feel more comfortable hanging with the guys. Does anyone else feel this way? My sister’s like that too: we sometimes joke that we have more guy friends than girls. Guys are much more easy-going! So, last night, […]

Raw Snickerdoodle Cookies

Pin It!

Ya know, for someone who will never be a raw-foodist, I sure do have a lot of raw recipes. I even have a separate raw recipe tab! And now it’s time for yet another creation that falls under this tab: Hmmm… I bet these’d be good alongside (or inside) a big bowl of Snickerdoodle Oatmeal! […]

Soy-Free Vegan Yogurt

Pin It!

No, I don’t eschew all soy. I believe that all most foods in moderation are perfectly fine. But that’s exactly the point: moderation. The problem with soy is that these days it’s in everything, from beverages to vitamins to Fritos! And unlike the Japanese, who have been reaping the health benefits of soy foods for […]

Where be my Little Mermaids?

Pin It!

Growing up, did anyone else love The Little Mermaid? Pink Lady meal: chocolate pb (unpictured) and Strawberry Shortcake Pudding. And then I babysat for the world’s most energetic child! (Note Henry in the background. If you try to get too close to him, he’ll run away. Poor guy is deathly afraid of the water. Thinks […]

I feel so Loved!

Pin It!

I’ve met SO MANY amazing people thanks to blogging. I’m sure most of you feel the same way. Some of y’all are more like me than anyone I know in the real world. It’s sad to think that, even just a few years ago, people could go through their entire lives with no way to […]
